Shopping Today

The fence is coming along nicely. I've started putting up the boards and it's looking good but I'm taking today off.

It's been a tough couple of weeks so at the end of the month Gar Guy, my favorite uncle (whose first name my daughter carries as her middle name) and I are going to take a couple of days and ride around the Rocky Mountain area. So this afternoon I'm going to go and take a look at a motorcycle. Hopefully I'll come home with something shiny and fast. No, it will not be a Harley. First, I'm not that guy and second, even if I was I can't afford one.

In light of that I will offer you some video content instead of my usual ramblings, nonsense and buffoonery.

I present Nurburgring at the speed of smell.

And done just a tad quicker.

 I rode for a living for 10 years and I have 22 laps at Laguna Seca at speed on a Kawasaki ZX6 but that guy still scared the crap out of me. And I was sitting on a barcalounger!

If a purchase is made I promise pics and maybe even a little video later today.

Shit I've driven a patrol car at 140; can you imagine what it would be like to drive a two wheeler at 157+; no thank you I'll stick with the recliner.

Good luck on finding just the Baby Bear's Porridge of wheels!!

Trooper says his top speeds are on a need to know and I do not. Hmph.
